    frequency

    is there really a specific frequency of training one should try to adhere to?

    3 times a week, 4, 5 times a week or is it simply dependent to times a week a muscle is trained, enough recovery and simply the time one has free to workout..

    Everyone is different and with that being said I like to workout 3 days out of every 8-9 days. Listen to your body for overtraining, cut back and add rest days. I've made the best gains by adding rest days.

    i agree with ever-last, its all about listeing to your body.. you you have to determineif your overtraining or.....just about right... or even under training, its all up to you and only you, advice cant help determines signes from your body... try difrent things up.... use varation and im sure you will find just about wats right for you

    As you probaly know muscles grow while your resting so i work each muscle group once a week and get plenty of rest... jsut make sure that u use progressive overload as your method of training and keep improving or maintaing your lifts every week to get stimulate muscle growth..... well good look man

    Most muscle growth is done in the 36 hour period after your workout, 48 hours at the most. The rest of your week is basicly wasted time.

    How come? HIT's frequency is susually very low. Unless you're talking about Arthur Jone's HIT which had higher frequency but standed on the false premise that muscular failure was required for muscle growth to happen.
